In here  , you will find this

Sites which are within 1 mile of public transport
Campsites and Caravan Parks within one mile of the nearest public transport. This may be a railway station or bus stop

Cheers  Ratty

Either site in Edale (Cooper's or Fieldhead) - very easy journey from Manchester.  Also Pindale between Hope and Castleton -not a huge walk from Hope Stn.

Don't forget the earplugs!!!!!

HERE.

Campsites near Railway Stations also are usually near railway lines and trains through the night can be devilishly noisey beasties.

I camped at Riverside in Betws-y-Coed once. The tent area (which is now just small 2-man tents BTW) was directly under the railway embankment. I thought my time had come when the first train went past in the morning.

Station Campsite at Carrog in North Wales is right at the end of the Llangollen steam railway - the station is just across the lane from the site - but you wouldn't necessarily have to get the train to it, the bus goes along the main road just at the top of the lane.

I can second Smashing69's recommendation for Edale. It can get quite busy at the usual Bank hol times and would therefore suggest booking ahead.  My particular favourite is Fieldhead.  If you was to go to Edale there is a 10 min walk or so from the station to Fieldhead so good news if you was a little concerned about the noise from the trains.

I do not know how relevant it will be for you but many campsites are in rural settings and as far as railway lines and country roads go, this usually means unmanned Level Crossings.

All trains have to blow their whistles as they approach unmanned crossings.

If the line that you are camped beside happens to be used through the night by trains and the campsite is close to an unmanned crossing, not even the best earplugs you can buy will keep you from hearing these whistles.
As we found out to our horror at Bruce's UKCS Meet.

Hi

fisherground in the lakes is next to the Ravenglass Steam Railway and has a request stop at the campsite. Would be an interesting and scenic way to arrive, even a bit Famous Five.

You shouldn't be bothered by night time running either

Fisherground is a good option. An alternative would be the C&CC Eskdale site which is just about 100 yds from the Dalegarth Station on the Ravenglass/Eskdale railway. This has the advantage of being in the very pleasant village of Boot with two good pubs and a third one about 1 mile away. The downside is that the additional fare on this railwaywould make your journey expensive.

Fieldhead is much nicer for backpackers.  No cars on the fields and even a bit over the stream just for small scale campers.  I did hear the quarry trains coming in and out of Hope at all hours but not a great noise if you're a city dweller.

Coopers is a bit open, windswept and choc full of cars and vast tents - if that's your thing...

Pindale is also great on weekdays only.  Weekends gets far too busy - cars parked about 2ft from my tent is a recurring annoyance there
